    OT: custom automotive creeper

    All the tool truck creepers are made by Whiteside. They have some pretty stout models. MTLVMONLOP 40″ Fully Padded Extra-Wide Metal Frame Creeper – Whiteside Manufacturing I have been using a Whiteside 6 wheel creeper for years. The casters tend to come loose, and "flame resistant" is a real...

    6.0L powerstroke possible replacement

    I've not seen any Hemi lifter failures, but I've seen several with broken valve springs. They are also really hard on exhaust manifold bolts and gaskets, at least in my climate. Both the Hemi and the LS variants have issues with the cylinder deactivation. Intake gaskets were a real issue in...

    6.0L powerstroke possible replacement

    LOL. I had a customer who thought that. Paid a "shop" to delete it. Then paid them again to "tune" it when it didn't run right. Then got put out of service by the DOT for missing emissions equipment. Then paid a dealer to reinstall all the emissions parts that he scrapped. I could tell you a...

    Makino Customer Service Letdown!

    Do you have a wiring diagram? If not, you need to get one. Normally, machine builders are not very imaginative. If there is a physical limit switch LS28, I'd bet there are wires in the cabinet also labeled LS28. Start tracing or just jump around it for now. If it's a virtual limit (set by...

    Extending the life of oxy/acetylene regulators

    I've been using a Praxair Prostar private labeled Victor torch setup for 8+ years. It's not a knock off, it's an actual Victor unit, they just private label it and sell it a little cheaper than a genuine Victor. I had to opposite problem. I used to back out the regulators and bleed the lines...
